Required Password Change

In order to increase account and network security, ITS requires you to change your USC password every six months. ITS will send you a notice on a semi-annual basis, informing you that you must change your USC password within 14 days.

(Click red title above for more information.)

You can change your USC password by going to and clicking the Change USC Password link under Popular Topics. If you do not change your password within 14 days, your account will be disabled, and you will be unable to access Blackboard, the MyUSC portal, and other USC systems until you change your USC password.

For assistance with changing your USC password, please contact the ITS Customer Support Center at 213-740-5555. For additional information on password security and other ways you can protect your information, please see
